Do these programs drain my battery
Though I know gb roms don't have such a great battery life it seems as if my battery is draining faster than it should despite changing to different roms, calibration, changing batterries and deleting apps or widgets . (Currently gamrez rom which has been said to have quite a good battery ) .my battery drain is about 10 percent an hour with a mild to idle use. it's been like that for my old battery and even for a new 1800mah. I suspect there might be a program respobsible for this.
Since these programs dont appear under battery usage, yet are considered services I think the culprit is one of them.it might be that one of them is preventing the phone from going to deep sleep so the battery drains when idle.
My running programs are:
3G watchdog (sync every 15 minutes)
Call meter 3g
Sanity (only for auto handsfree)
Bussiness calander free
(before anyone blames it on these three, it happenend even when they've been removed )
skype (service autorun disabled and usually not logged in)
No stock email
Also as far as widgets are concerned I have a widget for callmeter usage. 3g watchdog and bussiness calendar agenda. and sync for google stuff , whatsapo and viber.
I know it's a lot of stuff, but I've been tweaking and picking these programs since I really need their functionality.
Under battery usage most of it goes to display (about 50%)
People report better battery under heavier usage so something most be wrong.
Didn't have time or nerve to switch to ics but I'm affraid it a program so it won't make a difference
